Joe Cunningham brings years of industry experience and engineering education to his role as adjunct professor of electrical and mechanical engineering technology. In his three years at UNH Manchester, his enthusiasm, experience and focus on experiential learning has fostered the success of his engineering technology students.
Cunningham is a strong proponent in learning by doing, so his courses encourage hands-on work in robotics, environmental controls, motors and more. He not only believes applied projects are the best way for students to learn—it also gives them the skills and experience that employers look for.
With years of experience as an industrial engineer, Cunningham also shares his STEM expertise with younger generations through work with Project Lead The Way and the FIRST and VEX robotics competitions. In addition to teaching at UNH Manchester, he also serves as head of the industrial design, manufacturing, mechanical, robotics and automation engineering technologies department at NHTI.
Cunningham earned his M.Ed. from Rivier University and B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Merrimack College.
